Easy 80 metre rope jump in southwest Gran Canaria
The Caidero Oscuro gorge, close to El Horno in southwest Gran Canaria, is naturally concave and perfect for rope jumping. The comfortable 120 metre jump, with 80 metres of free fall, starts from the wide lip of the gorge. The exit point is at 625 metre above sea level and has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, cliffs, houses and fields. It is just 20 minutes drive from Maspalomas resort.
Rope jumping between vertical rock walls
Getting to the exit point and back requires an almost vertical, hour-long hike between rocks and bushes. The walk ends on a platform that is safe for jumpers of all levels. For a safe jump you need the services of a local company that knows the area well. This jump is best done during the autumn and winter because the area is very hot during the summer months.
